AbstractThis study was conducted in 2016 to shed the light on the density indicator, and how to determine it in the urban planning process, and it's impact in the urban design process.
The theoretical part of this study was carried out to find the indicators of relationship between elements of urban design (effected density) and it's principle, as the good urban design is produced by adhering to a set of general principles derived from the application of the physical elements of urban design. while the practical part of this study to the use of a range of experts (PhD and MSc) specialists in the field of architecture, design and urban planners of the architectural backgrounds to assess and put the weights of the impact affected density urban design elements on it's principles. The research found that there are discrepancies between urban design elements, where the highest value is a component of the economic and social fabric as it was (6.7333) and the lowest value was for component interfaces, as was (1.4667) according to the test (Tukey HSDa), as well as having a genuine differences of the relative importance of the principles of urban design at the moral level of 0.1 on a schedule (Friedman test), where the highest value of the principle of construction of public spaces vibrant and was (7.06) and the lowest value was the principle of public participation as she was (3.38).
